Our Los Angeles thread lift treatment is a minimally invasive alternative to a surgical facelift or neck lift. It is designed to improve visible signs of aging on the face, jawline, and neck by lifting sagging skin.
With a thread lifting, dissolvable sutures which have strategically placed barbs are placed beneath the skin’s surface, lifting your skin against gravity into a more youthful – and very natural – position.
What is Thread Lifting?
Advancements in anti-aging therapies have come a long way. In the past, if men and women wanted to treat the visible signs of aging, the only option was a surgical facelift, which is very effective, but involves some downtime. While a surgical facelift is the right procedure for many people, thread lifting may be all that is needed to create a refreshed, rejuvenated look for the right candidate.
Thread lifting performed by Dr. Kimberly Lee can smooth facial lines and creases and restore the lovely contours of your neck and jawline, all while stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. These vital proteins are the building blocks of your skin which give it volume and a youthful, supple quality. When your thread lifting is completed, you will immediately see a more youthful profile – and experience a boost to your self-confidence.
How Thread Lifting Works
Thread lifting is performed by guiding specially designed threads underneath the surface of your skin, targeting areas which need the most rejuvenation. These threads contain a series of tiny barbs which lift your facial skin to a more youthful position, tightening areas with crepey, loose skin. While reinforcing the underlying structure of your skin, the barbs stimulate your body’s production of valuable collagen and elastin to stimulate further rejuvenation. This is all done at the comfort of our Beverly Hills facility with local anesthesia, so you can be nice and relaxed during your treatment.

Candidates for Thread Lifting in Los Angeles
Men and women who are interested in softening the visible signs of aging for a more youthful appearance without invasive surgery or downtime may be good candidates for thread lifting in Beverly Hills. Thread lifting is ideally suited for those who are experiencing mild to moderate issues of skin laxity, lines and creases. It is also particularly suited to improving jowls and definition of the jawline.
Thread Lifting VS Facelift
It’s important to have realistic expectations whenever you choose to have any cosmetic procedure, and thread lifting is no different. Unlike traditional facelift procedures, Thread lifting doesn’t require deep manipulation of the facial tissues or skin nor does it come with a lengthy recovery period. Additionally, thread lifting is an ideal treatment for those who are interested in delaying the need for a facelift. A thread lifting, however, cannot provide the dramatic results of a surgical facelift. When performed correctly, a surgical facelift is a procedure that can yield longer term results. Unfortunately, the aging process will continue.
Recovery After Thread Lifting
You may experience mild swelling, bruising, or minor skin displacement immediately following your treatment. This is temporary and should resolve within several days. The sutures used in your thread lift are dissolvable and will continue to stimulate the increased production of collagen and elastin for up to six months before being absorbed by your body. You may continue your normal activities as soon as you leave our treatment center but should avoid abrupt movement in the treated areas, strenuous exercise, and facial massage for a few weeks following treatment. Dr. Lee advises patients that sleeping on your back for the first several days following their treatment helps the skin to settle as it should.
